Can We Compare Conceptions of Democracy in Cross-Linguistic and Cross-National Research? Evidence from a Random Sample of Refugees in Germany

This study addresses the heated academic and public debate on the compatibility and comparability of refugees’ and host societies’ democratic values. Comparative values research has long capitalized on global similarities and differences in support for Western democratic values. We argue that such cross-cultural comparisons of culturally diverse groups are challenged by (1) different conceptions of ...

The Need for Household Panel Surveys in Times of Crisis: The Case of SOEP-CoV

The spread of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, poses major challenges for individuals and societies at large. The question now is how individuals and society are dealing with these challenges, and what health, psychological, social, and economic effects they will have to bear. Meaningful answers can only be provided using a generalizable database that contains contextual information such as family ...

Heteroskedastic Proxy Vector Autoregressions

In proxy vector autoregressive models, the structural shocks of interest are identified by an instrument. Although heteroskedasticity is occasionally allowed for, it is typically taken for granted that the impact effects of the structural shocks are time-invariant despite the change in their variances. We develop a test for this implicit assumption and present evidence that the assumption of time-invariant ...

Analyzing Nonresponse in Longitudinal Surveys Using Bayesian Additive Regression Trees: A Nonparametric Event History Analysis

Increasing nonresponse rates is a pressing issue for many longitudinal panel studies. Respondents frequently either refuse participation in single survey waves (temporary dropout) or discontinue participation altogether (permanent dropout). Contemporary statistical methods that are used to elucidate predictors of survey nonresponse are typically limited to small variable sets and ignore complex interaction ...

Way Off: The Effect of Minimum Distance Regulation on the Deployment of Wind Power

Several countries and regions have introduced mandatory minimum distances of wind turbines to nearby residential areas, in order to increase public acceptance of wind power. Germany’s largest federal state Bavaria introduced such separation distances of ten times the height of new wind turbines in 2014. Here, we provide a novel monthly district-level dataset of construction permits for wind turbines ...

Exploring the Robustness of Country Rankings by Educational Attainment

The measurement scale of exam scores is ordinal. This ordinal measurement implies that monotonic transformations of published scales convey the same information. Hence, countries should not be ranked according to averaged scores because there may be transformations that would change the mean-based rankings. We suggest alternatives to the mean-based ranking procedure that yield informative and robust ...

Akzeptanz der einschränkenden Corona-Maßnahmen bleibt trotz Lockerungen hoch

Die wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Einschränkungen durch die Corona-Maßnahmen hat die große Mehrheit der Deutschen mit Disziplin mitgetragen. Sogar am Osterwochenende hielt sich die Bevölkerung an die weitreichenden Kontaktbeschränkungen. Doch nun wecken selektive Lockerungsmaßnahmen, also die Wiedereröffnung von vielen Geschäften und öffentlichen Einrichtungen wie Schulen, die Hoffnung auf die Rückkehr ...

Corona-Tests sind zu selektiv, um auf tatsächliche Infektionszahlen zu schließen

Spätestens seit Ende März ist die Corona-Krise endgültig in Deutschland angekommen. Unklar ist aber bis heute, inwieweit die offizielle Fallzahl die tatsächliche Entwicklung der Epidemie widerspiegelt. Nutzen und Kosten einer möglichen Lockerung der einschränkenden Maßnahmen können allerdings nur dann sinnvoll betrachtet werden, wenn die Zahl der Erkrankten und die aktuelle Infektionsgeschwindigkeit ...

Lessons from Modeling 100% Renewable Scenarios Using GENeSYS-MOD

The main aim of models has never been to provide numbers, but insights. Still, challenges prevail for modelers to use the best configuration of their models to provide helpful insights. In the case of energy system modelling, this becomes even more complicated due to increasing complexity of the energy system transition through the potential and need for sector coupling. This paper therefore showcases ...
